Photos and description

The opening ceremony of the Museum took place on 18 November 1887 the Project was completed by Professor Carl Gustav Estlander who saw "house of art" as a creative unity of art and craft under one roof - the idea, which was received by Finnish artists without much enthusiasm. Now here are the most significant collection of Finnish art from the mid 1700s to the modernism of the 1950s.
